Have you ever tried pan-frying your deli meats?! (Especially in the same pan that you just used to cook up some crispy bacon?)- It’s a genius move, my friends.

Deli meats aren’t just meant for lunches, and they don’t have to be served cold! 😉

I love making giant slider sandwiches for dinner because it’s easy and fun to get creative. (My mom used to make us “Monster Sandwiches” because we would load them with so many goodies.)

Sara Lee® Premium Meats are the perfect choice for these sliders because they have high-quality meats and ingredients, a delicious fresh taste, and are affordable. They have tons of simple meal solutions that your family will love.

Sometimes I just tell the deli counter to give me any one of their Sara Lee® Premium Meats, they’re all so good.

You can use any kind of cheese in this recipe, but I love the flavor of Pepper Jack Cheese combined with Chipotle Ranch Dressing, bacon, a hint of crisp lettuce, and of course, Sara Lee® Oven Roasted Chicken.
